Behind the Lens: My Life [9781472130280]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

2019 marks fifty years in entertainment for much-loved actor David Suchet who is a stalwart of British stage and television.

From Shakespeare to Oscar Wilde, Freud to Poirot, Edward Teller to Dr Who, Harold Pinter to Terence Rattigan, Questions of Faith to Decline and Fall, right up to 2019's The Price, David has done it all.

Throughout this spectacular career, David has never been without a camera, enabling him to vividly document his life in photographs.

Seamlessly combining photo and memoir, Behind the Lens is the story of David's remarkable life, showcasing his wonderfully evocative photographs and accompanied by his revelatory and engaging commentary.

As well as his work, David will discuss his London upbringing and love of the city, his Jewish roots and how they have influenced his career, the importance of his faith, how he feels about fame, his love of photography, canal boats and music, his processes as an actor and how he prepares for a role, and reflections on his career, including how the industry has changed over the past fifty years, his personal highs and lows and how he wants to be remembered.

And, of course, life after Poirot and how he feels now about the twenty-five years he spent in that role.

Evocative and insightful, this is David Suchet as you've never seen him before - from behind the lens. 

'The book offers more insight into the mind and philosophy of this remarkable man than a more conventional biographical approach could have achieved' Country Life

AUTHOR: David Suchet is married with two grown-up children. He lives in London.
